Khalifa Port: 1% from completion
The Port, whose high-tech infrastructure and new semi-automated Container Terminal open on September 1st, is 99% complete.
Its capacity is 2.5 million TEU containers per year.
Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad), adjacent to the Port, is 93.6% completed. The megaproject is 98% completed.
Khalifa Port is the most technologically advanced Port in the MENA region and Kizad will grow into one of the largest Industrial Zones in the world.
“ I am delighted to see that we are on track to open Khalifa Port at 0700 on September 1st on schedule and within budget. With only 1% of the Port left to deliver, we are in touching distance of final completion.
We are excited by the disciplined progress made by all of our colleagues and stakeholders and I would like to thank them all, especially the wise leadership of the Government, for their support and hard work.
September 1st will be a very proud day not only for ADPC but also for the economy of the Emirate as we play our part in helping to fulfil the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030.”
